Can we have an introduction and/or Q&A thread for the new Lainchan owner?
On the subject of shirts & merchI've seen books/stickers are sold but I haven't seen a link to any shirts/other merch. Is there a seller related to the website? I saw a Lainchan shirt a few days ago, but I'd rather not support the seller if he stole designs (and I know these people selling shirts off websites like Teespring are marking them up and making money from it).
should catalog be the default layout?Does anyone here not browse chans in catalog view? I cant imagine anyone scrolling through posts of threads that they are not interested in to find content. The only time I used scroll view was many years ago when I first started hanging in 4chan and was not aware of scroll view. Shouldnt scroll view be the option with a link we can click on?
Have you tried not wordfiltering links?language enhancers fucking up links. Will you pls fix, Applesauce?
metaThis chan is slowing down. Chans are like sharks, they have to keep moving to survive. And what we have on our hands is a nearly-dead shark. I believe this is due to too many boards with overlapping themes and not enough users to keep every board active.
Lainchan's speed.Many people say either that Lainchan is getting faster or they just say lainchan is slow.(In context of posting speed)

Appleman1234's annoying whitespaceDear MacIntoshman1234, new owner of this website!
I have a humble request regarding the board software, provided it's not too much trouble:

Block Tor> You could argue blocking anonymous commenters is a way of combating trolls; creating fake profiles for abusive reasons — sextortion, grooming, cyberbullying — has just become illegal in the UK, and while Tor users aren’t completely untraceable, it would make work harder for trackers.
Where would I go to post a thread about general music sharing? Or for sharing art, writing, etc?
New feature: Chan Comment BoxThis feature allows to create new boards based of the website name (https://mysite.example.com). The creator will be the board moderator and this board will be visible on Lainchan and into the website using iframe HTML tag (similar to FB, YT, SoundCloud)
https://gitla.indoes anyone support https://gitla.in? is it part of lainchan? it wont send validation emails so i can complete my registration.
Lainchan GNU social instanceWhere is the GS instance on Lainchan, are you planning to install this software using the new Twitter clone (Qvitter) version?
Why are /sec/, /sci/, /tech/, /λ/, and /diy/ all different boards? Imo it would be better to have them combined into one large board for all those topics in order to not divide the userbase. Same with /lit/ and /cult/, literature should be considered culture and included within that board.
"Stop advertising adult services" in /civ/>"Stop advertising adult services"
Someone running a futurist/transhumanist wiki recently contacted me saying they were wondering if I would write up an article on lainchan. I think it would be a little weird for an admin to write about their own site, so I was wondering if any of you wanted to. As you can see, it's currently nonexistent: https://hpluspedia.org/wiki/Lainchan
Tor problems?I only come to this site through Tor because I'm 2kewl4skewl. Lately I've been having a lot of issues. Pages are only loading halfway so I can't see any images, images fail to load when I try to open them full size, or pages just fail to load at all and I get a "secure connection failed" error.

/civ/ is a dumpster fire and deserves to dieNo matter how you feel about the actual subject, the "When did /pol/ come here thread?" appears to have monopolized the image board entirely since it was posted. We're already a slow board and when the "recent posts" is about 80-90% /civ/ on a /g/ spinoff you know there's a problem. I understand that there is an argument about keeping the "politics debate" cancer contained but honestly something needs to be done so we can go back to the kind of discussions the majority of people on here actually want.

The mods deleted anime pic related in a post I made on /λ/ for being 'Irrelevant', despite that I thought it was, it was specifically chosen to convey a tone of anxious confusion at something another poster said.
Focalizing the Community for Our SurvivalI think Lainchan as a whole needs to become more focused on the technological aspects of the world rather than the other things in order to become more successful in terms of popularity and quality. This is because /lain/ itself, i.e. its users, already represents a niche group of people. Why would you split up an already niche group of people into so many various boards? We have a total of 12 boards alone in the main nav bar - 12! (Minus /q/, /mega/, etc.) What that's essentially doing is dividing an already niche group of people into 12 separate and even smaller categories that can be browsed only once at a time. Is this how you achieve quality in a niche community?
/sec/ is the new /civ/Well, it seems that way. What's with all the politics in there? I guess if you think about it, security is somewhat related to politics and trying to control information but aren't we looking for more technical discussions focused on security?

Doesn't Support IPv6?!Hello lainons, I just managed to get a cool IPv6 link at home with better performance, but when I tried to load Lainchan, I found it was still laggy. I did a nslookup and found Lainchan doesn't support IPv6 at all.
bring back kalyxCan you contact kalyx and transfer all of the radio music to him? I want kalyx to create a new website to host the boards you are about to delete. Will you put kalyx back on staff because you appleman clearly need his direction. Kalyx finally recovered soykaf.org and I for one want him to be our BDFL. Why did you lock the old IRC channel you lunatic?
Block further misuse of the word "botnet".I don't want to sound like someone who hates fun and I have personally misused the term regularly in the past, but usage of the term has expanded significantly from its original misuse to describe software that collects data on you for advertising purposes and it is now used to describe anything from software that isn't open source, to software/hardware that people believe to be back doored (commonly based on only speculation), to occasional misuse as a catchall term meaning "any software/hardware I don't like" (just as the word "wage slave" has started being misused to mean "anyone who disagrees with me/what I believe to be the common viewpoint"). This increasing misuse has started to become a problem as it can sometimes be hard to understand what exactly the person's problem with whatever they're calling "botnet" is, especially with the term's increasing misuse by people who seem to not know what the problem is with what they're referring to as "botnet" in the first place and who are only using the term because they heard other people using it.
hey mods i see you link to lewd /uboa / sushi
The "pedo problem" of LainchanLains, there is a real issue that we need to discuss here today.
Group the boards like they used to be for easy navigationHaving all the boards dumped into a single list in a random order is a bit un-user friendly. We should go back to how related boards used to be grouped together for easy navigation, such as:
